Abstract: For this activity, the student will use the Internet, magazines, newspapers and other resources to find an informative article relating to the ethical use of computers or the use of information technology and its impact on the community or examples of rapid change in information technology or computer engineering career paths. These assignments were designed to cover some of he expectations that do not involve programming or buildling. For the ICS4M Impact assignment, students find an article about a contentious technological issue, summarize it and prepare a debate for the classroom. The ICE3 Impact assignment requires students to build a scapbook of technological issues. These are both summative assignments completed at the end of the units on "Impact". The final document is the ICS4M Learn and Teach activity requiring students to pick a topic and teach it to the class. The teacher can provide the topis or allow students to pick their own topics subject to approval. Students must include an activity to assess student learning.
